Meet World of Fight

WoF (World of Fight), a new game by The9 Ltd.  is soon to come. New Web site address wofchina.com is very similar to WoW wowchina.com. This fact is very interesting because The9 Ltd has lost publishing rights for World of Warcraft in China few weeks ago.

April 16, 2009. The9 Limited (NASDAQ: NCTY) (“The9”), a leading online game operator and developer in China, announced today that  it has learned that Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft will be licensed to another China-based online game company following the expiration of the current license agreement with The9.

We wonder whether The9 is launching a WoW clone or this mysterious website with the similar name should draw players to its new game?
